Christmas Day Brunch at Shangri-La
Chef Gagandeep Sawhney of the Shangri-La hotel was a little fed up of the same Turkey dish on all menus. So he decided to add a fresh seafood platter to the menu. The fresh lobster is exotic and exlusive enough to find it's way to a Christmas menu. The fresh catch from Andamans is kept on a block of ice and ready to be prepared for you and your family. "Chilled seafood goes well with mayo and tomato sauce. I'm serving the poached lobster with a vodka cocktail sauce and bloody mary shooter," says Chef Sawhney. Perfect for the day time brunch menu at Caprese.
The brunch is priced at Rs 2750 plus taxes.
